to pull back, u.s. rebuilds kuwait. you had to believe he would do something rational like that. did saddam think he could beat the united states in a war? many thought he was actually a rational human being who would reach the conclusion that couldn't happen. oops. fast forward 22 years. today we saw similar fears by the the current crop of short sellers. you could hear their thoughts like mine in 1990. what happens if they do something rational? s what if they start caring about all the people forced out of work immediately or have to pay far more in taxes? what happens if they actually rise above? those concerns caused people to cover their short positions betting that the consequences of going over the cliff were unthinkable, as what saddam would face if he had to go to war with the united states. of course it turns out there never was any deal back then and we had to go to war, we won and that was it. markets bottomed because the decline compensated for the war already unless we would have lost it. we didn't know the outcome or how long it would take at the time we knew whenever

that are here. as mandy told you, the u.s. dollar rallied. that makes more qe less likely. some disappointment with the payroll. some of the numbers were a little bit on the squishy side. weak hourly earnings and average hours worked. for example. then there is the political slant, a lot of people have argued that president obama wins, the favorable jobs report makes it more likely. i think the aftermath of sandy very powerful and affecting certainly new yorkers more than a lot of people anticipated. i'll stick with the dollar story. if you look how the market is reacting, the two sectors that are most dollar sensitive are notably the weakest sectors today. that tells you these are commodity based, materials and energy. that tells you that that dollar strength has had an impact. techs and financials also to the weak side. finally, if that doesn't impress you, the gld, your major exchange traded fund for gold. it is one-tenth the price of gold here, moving down sitting essentially at a multi--month low, at least a two-month low. mandy, what gets your attention, volume is truly heavy here. headi

increase in taxes and such a huge cut in spending at the start of the year that the u.s. gets pushed back into recession. i don't think that's going to happen but that is what the market's going to focus on. >> what's the biggest mistake people make with regards to investing around the fiscal cliff, david? >> i think there are two mistakes. first, people need to realize that we are likely to get a solution. to me the three scenarios are an early deal, a just-in-time deal or a late deal in late january. the amount of pressure focused on congress to do a deal is going to be overwhelming from every aspect of the american economy. i think that will push them to a deal. i think the first mistake is assuming there won't be a deal because there will. the second is trying to pick little sectors in this whole issue. the real issue to me is that asset allocation is just completely messed up for many institutional and individual investors. people need to be a little bit more overweight equities, underweight fixed income. whether this is resolved expect both equity prices and fixed interest rates to
